The Edith Alice Stevens Fund
The Carberry and Area Community Foundation recently received a
substantial donation from Alice Stevens of Carberry, Manitoba. Alice
requested that her donation be put into a new endowment fund created
within the CACF called the Edith Alice Stevens Fund. Starting in 2013,
preference will be given to grant applications which: a) Assist in the
medical needs of needy youth. b) If no applications for medical assist-
ance is received in any individual year, then preference will be given to
providing educational assistance to a needy youth. Currently CACF is
funding the CCI Staff Award at Carberry Collegiate Institute in which
need is a criteria in the award for post secondary educational assistance.
CACF Executive Director, Teresa McConnell, receives a cheque from Alice Stevens to be applied to her new fund.
